At his recent speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Xi Jinping called on world leaders to join China’s “green revolution” and announced China’s bold timeline to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. Xi’s announcement not only marks China’s ambition to promote itself as a global climate leader. It is also representative of how visions of a green future, mostly promoted through the framework of “ecological civilization,” have been continuously gaining significance within China’s political discourse over the last two decades. Moreover, Chinese deliberations on domestic and international environmental governance have found global resonance within the debates on the Anthropocene – the new geo-historical epoch in which humans have become the major environmental force on Earth. This inter-disciplinary seminar will provide novel insights over China’s role in shaping socio-ecological paradigms destined to influence the future course of human civilization. The workshop will feature three short presentations, followed by an open discussion facilitated by a moderator.
